Not Today: Twitter Is Cheering Wendy Williams For Evicting 2 White Women From Her Audience Over This Joke

"Rachel Ray is downstairs."

Published May 2, 2018

Wendy Williams is known for vastly offending large groups of people — fans or not — during the tapings of her eponymous talk show, and while she is usually dragged for this rude approach, her latest offense has social media cheering in agreement.

During the "Hot Topics" segment of a recent episode of Williams' morning show, she burned two audience members who expressed discomfort over Michelle Wolf's White House Correspondence Dinner jokes.

In particular, the topic of Sarah Huckabee Sanders' "smokey eye" — as hilariously described by Wolf in the comedic bit — rubbed the two white women the wrong way, who proceeded to applaud when Williams asked if any of her "co-hosts" were offended by the joke.

"OK, co-hosts. Honestly, clap if you think it was an off-color joke that she made and it's not right to criticize other women's looks," she asked her audience.

The camera panned over the entire crowd, and all but two women sat with their hands at their sides.

After noticing the two audience members clap in offense, Williams then proceeded to show them the door.

"Well, you're at the wrong show," she said as the rest of the audience applauded and laughed. "Rachel Ray is downstairs. I will call the elevator for you, right now. This is the Wendy show."
